This is an original but USED vintage newspaper not a scan and not a later re-print. If there is a particular date you require in regards to this item eg. For a Birthday or anniversary etc please ask. The Illustrated London News was a magazine founded by Herbert Ingram with the first edition of the Illustrated London News appearing on 14 May 1842. The four digit number in brackets in title is for my ref only.

It measures 365 x 260 mm (14.25 x 10.25). The staples are rusty leaving witness marks. It retains the outer red advertising cover; there is a split up the spine edge of this. Some of the pages have handling marks, blemishes due to their age. The images, photos, drawings etc. vary in size. PLEASE NOTE: I cannot guarantee that the issue is complete as published - but what I have described above IS present. As far as I can tell there are no pages missing, but if you are looking for something in particular in this issue PLEASE ASK. The process of the page numbering in the ILN run on from previous issues and therefore do not start at number 1.

The above description details the content in my words and not necessarily what is written on the original page. "Info." in the description is my research, although relevant to the accompanying image or article, is not necessarily in the text. This item will be packaged in a postal tube.
